TLM 103 data

Pressure-gradient Microphone
A microphone in which both sides of the diaphragm are exposed to the incident sound, and the microphone is therefore responsive to the pressure differential (gradient) between the two sides of the membrane. Incident sound parallel to the plane of the diaphragm produces no pressure differ­ential, and so pressure-gradient micro­phones have characteristically figure-of-eight directional character­istics. Also called velocity microphone, since the output voltage is proportional to the air particle velocity.
